The North Carolina General Assembly passed legislation in 2006 establishing the North Carolina Waterfront Access Study Committee. Access to water along the state's coastline is a hot topic, because piers, boat ramps, and other access points are being sold to developers. Getting to the water is becoming more difficult for the average citizen. The committee has held meetings in Manteo, Morehead City, and Wilmington, and 275 people have attended. Mosher discusses concerns and suggestions citizens offered to the committee.
